The Great American Beer Festival is almost here! GABF is an annual celebration of everything wonderful in the world of craft brewing, hosted right here in Denver by the Brewer’s Association.
The air is crisp! The mountain leaves are stunning!
Kickstart your morning with super-caffeinated cookies! These lusciously rich cookies are vegan, gluten-free, and packed with energy thanks to espresso & cacao nibs.
Treating ourselves to a deliciously bubbly frozen treat for the weekend! Tart sherbet melting into sweet lemon liqueur and topped off with seltzer – root-beer-float style – is wonderfully refreshing.
I shared a recipe for addicting tzatziki sauce – aka that insanely delicious, tangy yogurt sauce on gyros and kebabs and anything Greek – in the first year of this blog. Aside from the hilariously awful yellow photos, that recipe has held up for years, and it’s our summertime go-to for everything from grilled meats
We’ve hit that point in summer when everyone else’s gardens are overrun with squash! Meanwhile I’m bemoaning my black thumb (and that June hailstorm that squished my veggie-garden-dreams), but at least I can ‘help out’ by taking lots from generous friends.

Overnight chia bowls are saving my summer mornings! No matter how early the sun rises, I still struggle to find any motivation for a hot breakfast.
Is there anything more addictive than salty-sweet pretzel bites coated in a thick layer of rich dark chocolate?!
